New Bmw M6 to receive a manual transmission option

Article by Christian Andrei, on June 4, 2012

Although today a sports car with an automatic transmission seems the perfect choices, there are people who actually enjoy a manual transmission. As a result, Bmw will offer for this type of customers their brand new M6 Coupe and Convertible models with a six-speed manual option. According to Car and Driver, the new M6 will get a manual transmission in 2013 or 2014.

Apparently, American customers are the ones who want a manual transmission, as the European buyers accepted the latest generation of automated transmissions. Still, Bmw is encouraging its executives and spokesmen to convince customers that an automatic transmission is better.

For those who don’t know, the all-new Bmw M6 is powered by a 4.4-liter V8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology, which delivers 412 kW/560 hp and a maximum torque of 680 Newton metres (502 lb-ft) from 1,500 rpm. Mated to a seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission with Driverlogic, the vehicle is able to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.2 seconds, 200 km/h (124 mph) in made in 12.6 seconds and has a top speed of 250 km/h or 155 mph.
